Missing Markers

I have spent years searching for the “best” perspective to capture the engineering marvel of a bridge that crosses Tampa Bay.  Of course the position I would like happens to be in the middle of the bay (impossible to deploy my long exposure technique from a boat).

After closer examination, the perspective from Anna Maria Island and this small jetty met all my requirements.

I am asked about the name for this image quite often.  It would appear that it isn’t too far between the last channel marker post and the bridge.  In reality it’s about 7 miles.  So now you understand how many channel markers might be missing.  Perspective IS everything.
